All attendees from outside Guatemala are responsible for making sure they have the correct documentation to enter the country. Delegates are strongly advised to explore visa requirements as early as possible and, should a visa be required, to apply as soon as possible as the process can be time-consuming. IAIA has no influence on visa application procedures or the approval/denial of individual applications by embassies. All countries have different requirements; it is the sole responsibility of each delegate to inquire about the proper procedure from their country’s embassy to procure his/her visitor visa.

Visitors to Guatemala must have a valid passport or travel document with a minimum validity of six months beyond the period of stay.  If your country requires a visa (see the list posted here), applications should be submitted to the nearest Guatemalan overseas mission with the appropriate documentation.

All registrants will receive a link to download an invitation letter in the registration confirmation email. Registration is required before invitation letters are issued.

The symposium will be held in English and Spanish. Translation to English and Spanish will be available for all sessions.

Short courses will be given in Spanish with translation to English.

Spanish is the official and most spoken language in Guatemala. There are also over 20 Mayan and Indigenous languages used throughout the country.
